Storage idea

And so it has begun... the much-needed, long-overdue, big tidy-up/reorganisation of my craft room!

I've so far discovered a fair expanse of carpet that hasn't seen the light of day in far too long, have made a start on sorting out my overflowing scrap paper boxes and have reorganised my ProMarkers into the extra RUBs that I bought yesterday.

And... I've also installed a storage system for my Nesties:
Argh!! For some reason every time I upload this photo, whether it be from a URL or from my computer, it comes out rotated to the right!
I think I got the idea from someone mentioning something similar on UKS... I saw this sticky magnetic tape in Hobbycraft yesterday and decided to give it a go. I've stuck strips of the tape onto the side of the wall-mounted Expedit unit down by the end of the desk where I keep my BigShot and all the Nesties simply cling onto the magnetic strips. So I can now see at a glance what Nesties I have and they are there right at hand by the BigShot.

Of course, the downside to this method of storing Nesties is that DH can see exactly how many of the darn things I've managed to acquire! :lol: (And yes, I didn't actually realise myself how many I had until I unpacked them all... it's easy to forget when they are stuffed away in a box amongst piles of Sizzix dies and embossing folders!)
